rsync - incremental file transfer program for Unix systems

  •    C

rsync is a file transfer program for Unix systems. rsync uses the rsync algorithm which provides a very fast method for bringing remote files into sync. It does this by sending just the differences in the files across the link, without requiring that both sets of files are present at one of the ends of the link beforehand. It can update whole directory trees and filesystems. It can use rsh, ssh or direct sockets as the transport.

go-sync - gosync is a library for Golang styled around zsync / rsync, written with the intent that it enables efficient differential file transfer in a number of ways

  •    Go

The ZSync mechanism has the weakness that HTTP1.1 ranged requests are not always well supported by CDN providers and ISP proxies. When issues happen, they're very difficult to respond to correctly in software (if possible at all). Using HTTP 1.0 and fully completed GET requests would be better, if possible. There are some other issues too - ZSync doesn't (as far as I'm aware) solve any issues to do with storage of a files, which can get more and more onerous for large files that are not changing much from one version to another.

osync - A robust two way (bidirectional) file sync script based on rsync with fault tolerance, ACL support and time control

  •    Shell

A two way filesync script running on bash Linux, BSD, Android, MacOSX, Cygwin, MSYS2, Win10 bash and virtually any system supporting bash). File synchronization is bidirectional, and can be run manually, as scheduled task, or triggered on file changes in daemon mode. It is a command line tool rsync wrapper with a lot of additional features baked in. This is a quickstart guide, you can find the full documentation on the author's site.

sshync - Auto-sync files or directories over SSH.

  •    Javascript

Auto-sync files or directories over SSH using rsync and Exclude files or directories by creating .sshyncignore in your source root (see repo root for example).

bitpocket - "DIY Dropbox" or "2-way directory (r)sync with proper deletion"

  •    Shell

bitpocket is a small but smart script that does 2-way directory synchronization. It uses rsync to do efficient data transfer and tracks local file creation/removal to avoid known rsync problem when doing 2-way syncing with deletion. bitpocket can use any server which you have ssh access to for its central storage. If you have gigabytes of free disk space on your hosting server you can finally make use of it.

SharePoint Rsync


This program will sync files from unc/local/sharepoint to a SharePoint 2007, 2010, or 2013 server. Supports up to 2GB files.


  •    Java

This is a simple GUI for rsync. Unlike most other graphical interfaces for rsync which ease backing up your data with rsync, the goal of the RsyncFTP client is to behave like an FTP client and provide an easy way to replace FTP by using rsync.


  •    C

Perl implentation of rsync that can talk directly to a native rsync program or rsync daemon. The file system I/O is abstracted into a seperate module, which allows an rsync interface to be developed for data other than regular file systems.

librsync -- network-delta library

  •    C

librsync is a library for calculating and applying network deltas, with an interface designed to ease integration into diverse network applications. librsync encapsulates the core algorithms of the rsync protocol, which help with efficient calculation of the differences between two files. The rsync algorithm is different from most differencing algorithms because it does not require the presence of the two files to calculate the delta. Instead, it requires a set of checksums of each block of one file, which together form a signature for that file. Blocks at any in the other file which have the same checksum are likely to be identical, and whatever remains is the difference.

UDR - A UDT wrapper for rsync that improves throughput of large data transfers over long distances.

  •    C++

UDR is a wrapper around rsync that enables rsync to use UDT. OpenSSL (libssl and libcrypto) Currently, UDR has mainly been tested on Linux so your mileage may vary on another OS. UDT has been well tested on all of the provided options.

rsnapshot - a tool for backing up your data using rsync (if you want to get help, use https://lists

  •    Perl

rsnapshot comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY. This is free software, and you are welcome to redistribute it under certain conditions. See the GNU General Public Licence for details. rsnapshot is a filesystem snapshot utility based on rsync. rsnapshot makes it easy to make periodic snapshots of local machines, and remote machines over ssh. The code makes extensive use of hard links whenever possible, to greatly reduce the disk space required.

rsync-time-backup - Time Machine style backup with rsync.

  •    Shell

This script offers Time Machine-style backup using rsync. It creates incremental backups of files and directories to the destination of your choice. The backups are structured in a way that makes it easy to recover any file at any point in time. It works on Linux, macOS and Windows (via WSL or Cygwin). The main advantage over Time Machine is the flexibility as it can backup from/to any filesystem and works on any platform. You can also backup, for example, to a Truecrypt drive without any problem.

boto_rsync - An rsync-like utility using boto's S3 and Google Storage interfaces

  •    Python

boto-rsync is a rough adaptation of boto's s3put script which has been reengineered to more closely mimic rsync. Its goal is to provide a familiar rsync-like wrapper for boto's S3 and Google Storage interfaces. By default, the script works recursively and differences between files are checked by comparing file sizes (e.g. rsync's --recursive and --size-only options). If the file exists on the destination but its size differs from the source, then it will be overwritten (unless the -w option is used).

Dwifft - Swift Diff

  •    Swift

Dwifft is a small Swift library that tells you what the "diff" is between two collections, namely, the series of "edit operations" required to turn one into the other. It also comes with UIKit bindings, to automatically, animatedly keep a UITableView/UICollectionView in sync with a piece of data by making the necessary row/section insertion/deletion calls for you as the data changes. Dwifft is a Swift library that does two things. The first thing sounds interesting but perhaps only abstractly useful, and the other thing is a very concretely useful thing based off the first thing.

mc - Minio Client is a replacement for ls, cp, mkdir, diff and rsync commands for filesystems and object storage

  •    Go

Minio Client (mc) provides a modern alternative to UNIX commands like ls, cat, cp, mirror, diff, find etc. It supports filesystems and Amazon S3 compatible cloud storage service (AWS Signature v2 and v4).then use the mc config command.

mainframer - Tool for remote builds. Sync project to remote machine, execute command, sync back.

  •    Shell

Tool that allows you to move build process from a local machine to a remote one.Remote machine ought to be much faster than a laptop. With mainframer you can free up your local machine for better things — like editing source code in your IDE without lags and freezes, being able to actually use your computer when the build is happening.

profile-sync-daemon - Symlinks and syncs browser profile dirs to RAM thus reducing HDD/SDD calls and speeding-up browsers

  •    Shell

Profile-sync-daemon (psd) is a tiny pseudo-daemon designed to manage your browser's profile in tmpfs and to periodically sync it back to your physical disc (HDD/SSD). This is accomplished via a symlinking step and an innovative use of rsync to maintain back-up and synchronization between the two. One of the major design goals of psd is a completely transparent user experience. Always backup your browser profile(s) before using psd for the first time.
